The Monarch from Larix Lake # 1400

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 1996.09.15
Vantage Point: From Grizzly-Larix Trail

Caption: The east face of the Monarch is reflected in Larix Lake.

PhotoDescr: Larix Lake is one of the three lakes in Sunshine Meadows. See Sunshine Meadows: the Lakes. In the winter, the area is a popular downhill ski resort. The Monarch is further away than it appears, with the North Simpson River between the meadows and the mountain. Its relative isolation and sub-3000-meter elevation keep it from being a popular mountaineering or scrambling objective.
